Church Street Elementary School Home
In order to ensure ALL students’ safety at dismissal time, we are asking all parents to follow the Dismissal plan (Download dismissal plan here). We have more pick-up students because we have fewer buses, so we ask everyone to cooperate and help relieve the congestion on Chester Street and avoid any accidents or other incidents at dismissal time. We understand that everyone has somewhere to get to; however, everyone’s cooperation and patience are needed to make this process work for our entire school community. This is the same plan we’ve always had, with a few minor changes that will begin on Monday, OCTOBER 11th. If you are currently a parent of a student in grades K - 2 and you drive to pick up your child each day, you must use the car pick-up lane so that we can relieve the congestion on Chester Street. Please do not park and take up space on Chester Street.
Our Mascot Eli is on Instagram. He loves to show off our school. He will be posting student artwork, hallway bulletins, flyers, and school information. Stay connected and stay updated! Follow @csseagles

Through a grant from the CT Parent Trust Fund, we are pleased to offer the People Empowering People (PEP) leadership training to strengthen family engagement and empower parent/guardian(s) in support of their children’s education. The PEP curriculum focuses on the connection between individual action and community action. Through training sessions and discussions, individuals will learn how their individual efforts can support improvement within their community, and they will apply what they’ve learned in a culminating community project. Additionally, this program will contribute to meeting the Board of Education’s goal of increasing Equity. Participation in this program will empower parent/guardian(s) to add their voices and perspectives to the ongoing work for social justice occurring in Hamden Public Schools.
This program targets, but is not limited to, parents/guardians of elementary-school-aged children (pre-K to 6th grade) from any of the district’s five Title One schools (Church Street, Dunbar Hill, Helen Street, Ridge Hill, and Shepherd Glen).
Mid-October to November, a campaign supported by School Principals, HPS Preschool Program and Adult- Ed Program Directors, Hamden Partnership for Young Children, and PTAs to recruit 25 interested participants will take place. The 10-week training will begin after the December holiday season and continue through May; Sessions will take place on weeknights with dinner and childcare provided. More information will be available soon.
